There’s been a lot of talk about islands lately, from John Donne’s quote (“No man is an island.”) to the news about China’s island constructions in the South China Sea. On August 21, 1959, Hawaii became a state. Join us as Diane Wright returns to Hopedale, and we consider the meaning of islands, as metaphor, as paradise, and as symbols of isolation. Service Leader: Orlita Kissane. Stick around for our monthly potluck after service. Please bring a dish or beverage to share.
